Discover an unforgettable high country horse riding holiday on an 18,000 acre, family owned and managed New Zealand sheep station (ranch). You are personally hosted by the owners; therefore, benefit from individual attention and an experience tailored to your needs. Bookings are not combined; unless agreeable to visitors, or otherwise stated. Hence, visit as a single person, couple, or small group to become our sole exclusive guests for the duration of your stay. This enables us to individually tailor our packages to suit.

Though horse riding based, this package is the definitive choice for anyone wishing to experience the unique characteristics of New Zealand high country sheep ranch. It includes free transfer from and to Winton (or Mossburn), which is on route by bus between Queenstown and Invercargill through ‘Tracknet’, or ‘Intercity’.
